U.S. News & World Report Coverage of David Monaghan and Paul Attewell's Research
U.S. News & World Report, 3.19.14
While past research has shown that community college students have a significantly lower change of attaining a bachelor's degree than those who start directly at four-year schools, the root of the problem isn't in something community colleges are or are not doing to prepare students, says David Monaghan, a sociology Ph.D. candidate at the Graduate Center of CUNY and co-author of the study… Monaghan and his colleague Paul Attewell, a CUNY professor, found that for 14 percent of transfer students, fewer than 10 percent of their credits were accepted by their new institution.
